FAVOUR ERADICATES EMPTINESS
By Pastor E. A. Adeboye
Memorise: “And I will give these people favour in the sight of all Egyptians; and it shall come to pass, that, when ye go, ye shall not go empty” Exodus 3:21
Read: Exodus 3:21-22
Bible in one year: Ezekiel 22-24
Prayer point: Father, let your favour completely swallow every emptiness in my life.
The trial of your faith is very important as it plays a major role in your life. Nobody knows it all nor is fully prepared for what God wants to use him or her for. This is why God sometimes uses trials to prune us and bea.t us into shape so that we can conform to His will. In any trial you face, may God’s purpose for taking you through it be accomplished in Jesus name.
“And I will give this people favour in the sight of all Egyptians: and it shall come to pass, that, when ye go, ye shall not go empty:” Exodus 3:21
After the trial of your faith, comes the release of God’s favour. One benefit of favour is that it prevents emptiness in the life of its beneficiary. For over 400 years, the Israelites laboured without pay, and there was no way they could take their oppressors to court. But the night God released favour to them after the Holy Communion, the curse of emptiness was totally destroyed from their lives. There are some people who have laboured for months or even years without pay. They could not take legal action against their oppressors. In some cases, some of those oppressors are fellow believers and even ministers of God who refuse to pay workers their dues. This is a situation of emptiness. It is a curse and not a blessing. If you are going through this, the Lord will terminate that situation in your life this season, and His favour will deliver what is pending to you. There is a User of this Devotional, for about three years, you laboured but could not take of the fruit. Congratulations! God has just smiled on you with His favour. What has been pending shall be speedily delivered to you. As you receive it, go and give thanks to God in your local parish and share your testimony to encourage others. Where there is no favour, there is bound to be emptiness, but when there is favour, emptiness ceases and abundance comes In. This season, abundance shall take over from the emptiness you have suffered in Jesus name. It is your season of favour.
